The GPS functionality of the device is used to notify emergency services of the location of the seat in the event of an accident. This occurs automatically when the onboard airbag – another feature of the child seat – is deployed.

The GPS Emergency Beacon Transmitter is responsible for relaying this information, with the emergency services displaying the location of the child seat, and therefore the site of the accident, on an electronic map.
